Nintendo’s Gameboy Case PC

Do you still have that old Nintendo’s Gameboy laying around? Check this out…
Some Japanese modders got a VIA EPIA PX10000G Pico-ITX, a flash card reader, to work as solid storage, and stuffed it all in the classic Nintendo’s portable system.
The system is complete with a LAN and USB ports. There is no hard drive; the CF card will make this part, fitting in the reader that is placed in the system’s cartridge slot. Although I didn’t found anything about this in the modder page nor in the Japanese source page, it is reported that the system runs Windows XP.
Ok, they could have been more careful while cutting in order to get a better finish, but this one is probably only an early prototype and soon we will be seeing a pretty well finished mod.
